This year the Slice of Life challenge has been different for me. It's only my second year participating, but it's different.
Join the challenge and write!
Slice of Life Stories hosted by the
Last year was more intimate. It's a fact: There were less slicers. Please don't misunderstand! I am thrilled at the number of teachers, writers, mothers, and husbands that are participating. However, last year I felt I could reach out to so many more writers. Read so many more slices. Leave so many more notes of encouragement. Follow the lives of so many more in the community of writers. This year is different for me.
Last year I connected with many slicers and I'm doing my very best to check in on their writing daily. This year my mom and two friends and colleagues joined in the challenge and I love to read what they write daily. I'm also trying to read slices from those that have left thoughtful comments on my posts daily. But the time to try and read more daily?!? Only possible solution: I need more time . . . daily! This year is different for me.
Last year I loved reading as many slices as I could because there were so many great ideas to borrow and try out. Just yesterday I told a group of fourth graders that it's the highest form of a compliment for someone to like and borrow your idea! Last night as I did my very best to read, read, read as many slices as I could . . . I stumbled upon these great ideas that I'm hoping to try:
- Sometimes I love you - Maya
- I wonder - Diana
- 15 Random facts about me - Jaana
- Things I'm thankful for -- this year - Judy (my mom!)
- Delicious - Lynn
- I cannot write today - Mardie
This year is different for me.
